How to Choose a Divorce Lawyer in Prince George

Couple with divorce lawyer Tracy L. Clark in Prince George.

Going through Divorce can be a difficult time.  It is important to find a competent, creative and understanding lawyer to guide you through the process.

WHY YOU NEED A DIVORCE LAWYER

The laws in British Columbia are constantly changing.  You can’t resolve your matrimonial issues without knowing the current state of the law.  Only a specialized family law lawyer can give you that guidance.

WHAT STEPS DO YOU NEED TO TAKE?

Every situation is unique and the legal services you need will depend on the specific facts of your situation.  Flexibility and creativity are often the most important tools available to negotiate an agreement. Make sure you pick a divorce lawyer who comprehends the issues prior to launching court proceedings.

PICK A LAWYER WHO SPECIALIZES IN FAMILY LAW

Family Law is very complicated.  Not only is it very specialized, it involves many other types of law.  When it comes to family law matters, you want a lawyer who listens to your concerns, understands the complexities of family dynamics and can quickly assess your situation.   The more in-depth your lawyer’s knowledge of family law, the more efficiently your matter can resolve.

PREPARE A LIST OF QUESTIONS

Once you have made an appointment with your family law lawyer, you should prepare a list of questions that you would like answered in your appointment.  If you are nervous about meeting your lawyer for the first time, that’s okay! A good divorce lawyer will understand what you are going through and will make the process as positive as possible in the circumstances.    

HOW DO YOU FEEL?

Especially in family law, it is important to feel comfortable with your counsel and be satisfied that your views have been heard.   Your lawyer should be approachable and easy to talk to. At the end of your initial appointment, you should feel relieved now that you have all available options in front of you.  You should feel confident that your counsel is helping to guide you in making the best decisions with respect to your matter.
